Cool, I'll check them out when I can do so without waking someone... and feel free to drop by anytime, bring your friends (just don't start a grok, because I still don't know what the fuck happens at them!).

Goodnight folks.

You bet I'll be dropping by! And don't worry, I only grok to my vast collection of Maykers 8-track tapes... :)

lol, me too. I remember when you first posted that over at the other Forum... I'm still hoping someone will show up with the screen name, "Little Grateful Dan", but no one has the guts. So funny...yet wicked...

My 2nd page of Demos is up.

http://www.archive.org/details/Demos2_275

Those who would like to hear something less garage-bandy might like Track 6 (Infra-red)... done using Vox 87.

I'm gonna try and do a page of 10 tracks a week until they're all up, time permitting.

Hey NC...and thanks for the review. I think you really *get* it. I like what you said abt how some spend high dollars to achieve the lo-fi sound I get naturally, simply by using outdated equipment and 'loving' it to death. And it's funny you'd mention Jane's Addiction, because I do a lot of covers, including a "Been Caught Stealing," featuring a mooing cow instead of the barking dog. I don't think uploading covers here would be too cool, though.

Gear?

Fostex 4-tracks, two different ones. They were gifted to me by someone who knows I do music and thought they were too 'lo-tech'. I actually managed to destroy both, which is why I don't remember the series number for one of them, but the other was an XR-5. Or was that XL-5? lordy... my brain aint working today.

Plus: Various non-brand-name guitars and basses, (at the beginning of the track "Train Of Thought' I whoop out "Woo! Teisco Del Rey" in celebration of one of these cheapo gits) TEAC 'box' mikes and Shure mikes, casio, drums (both real and Mattel), sax, yamaha keyboard, percussion, lots of colorful Roland box effects, toy instruments etc. On "Too Hot To Be Cool," the 'horn section' is a Yamaha keyboard trumpet mixed with a real C-melody sax.

"Infra-Red" (track 6) was done entirely on computer using a music-writing program called Vox 87 (I think, it's gone now because it's incompatible with my new puter). There's a lot more of those computer-generated tracks coming too...

I had the XR-5 myself!, nice clean aux sends on that sucker, recorded this stuff on it:

http://www.archive.org/details/Loaded
http://www.archive.org/details/Nothing_4
http://www.archive.org/details/Crazy_Machine
http://www.archive.org/details/Friend_Song_

Ran some of the tracks during mixdown through an ART compressoer/limiter (miss that thing) and an ART multiverb I picked up for $40 at the pawn shop with money I borrowed on a colt 357.

I was still usiing dial up when I uploaded these and they are one track per item (a limitation of ourmedia) in mp3 only but they were recorded onto digital audio cassette from the chrome master cassettes (i still have them) and slightly mastered and transfered to CD by my old guitar player and now mastering engineer at diskmakers so the sound quality versus the low speed tape is significant.

That XR-5 was the shit for it's time... I almost bought the 4 track mini dick recorder but by the time I saved up the $1100 it was obsolete!

Yeah, they were great units, I especially liked the AUX sends myself, super cool. And made entirely of the finest plastic parts! I'm gonna check out those links soonest, maybe write YOU a review for a change. :)

I wanted to say again about the review you wrote, that line about the "offtime>jam>sugar mag>stone foxx" sequence made me laugh so hard I almost cried, seriously! And I actually went and listened back to Off-Time to see if there was a Sunshine Daydream section or something tucked away in there I had forgotten about...lol. ya never know...

Well like Miles Davis so elegantly said, "If somebody told me I had only one hour to live, I’d spend it choking a white man. I’d do it nice and slow."

Oops, wrong quote, let me find the right one!

Ironic if you consider Miles probably has more white fans than black ones these days...

Thanks for the reviews, those songs were done around 1994/1995.

Same people, new technology:

Thank you for YOUR review too..."lots of energy and not boring" are what I aspire to...since 'professionally produced' isn't an option lol. I did my demos between like '95-'06.

I'll listen to this new one you put up as soon as I'm awake enough to listen properly... and thanks again.

Careful what you ask for, lol. I was going to do one page a week, but if I can, I might do one today. All any creative person wants is a little encouragement, I don't have to tell YOU that! :) I'll leave a post here when new demos go up.

And how! Well, I tried to listen to Helter Keller and of course the new "improved" player would only play 5 mins of it, so I'm running it through the iTunes. Review to follow...
